① One thing at a time : our mind is not built to do two tasks at the same time. If possible, try to do one task after the other. You may see your stress level decrease and your attention increase.
② Tracking the wandering mind: observe the moments when you go on \“autopilot\” (you do things \“without thinking about them\”, \“without paying attention\”). Notice where your mind has taken you (into the past to ruminate? into the future to plan?). And gently bring your attention back to the task at hand and to the sensations perceptible by your senses (sounds, images, smells, taste, touch…). Do this as often as necessary.
③ Take real breaks: on the other hand, plan real breaks in your day and take advantage of them to take 3 deep breaths, to observe your environment or look out of a window and let your gaze wander (calming effect).
